That's one of the things that I'm looking for - whether the Republicans are going to stick to their stance on social issues as they've done for as long as I've been old enough to know what they are.
Gay marriage is easily going to become legal everywhere eventually. Young people are in favor of it. Yet it's still something the Republicans are against, to their detriment.
Women's rights is another area where Republicans have been digging themselves into a hole for a long time. There are too many in the GOP who are against really basic, should-not-be-an-issue stuff like equal pay, contraception, abortion exceptions, and so on. Yeah, they make arguments based on "religious freedoms" and "free markets" to excuse their positions, but that's not gonna fly forever.
